A thermostat automatically turns your air conditioner on and off depending upon your preset temperature. It can greatly add to your comfort and optimal usage of the unit in your Hardaway, Alabama, home. However, there are different types of thermostats, and knowing about some major types can help you choose one with the functionalities you need.
Programmable thermostats allow you to set your air conditioner to different temperatures for different preset times. They make your life easier since you don’t have to press a button every time you need to change the temperature. Just set it once and you’re done. Programmable thermostats help you save on utility bills, since you can set your AC to higher temperatures when you aren’t around.
Programmable thermostats also come in a variety of designs. The basic models let you set different temperatures for day and night, while others allow you to adjust temperatures for different times on different days of the week.
If you love to keep things simple and prefer adjusting your room temperature “then and there” without any “predictions,” then non-programmable thermostats are for you. They are also great for someone from a different generation who would be more comfortable pressing a button rather than setting up temperatures on a modern gadget. Most non-programmable thermostats have an up-down button to adjust the temperature and a small display screen to show you the set temperature.
Wifi thermostats leverage the power of the internet to give you remote access to your HVAC system from any part of the world. Whether you want to cool your home just before returning from a vacation or tinker with the temperature a bit while lying on the bed, you can do it all using a mobile phone application.
Wifi thermostats usually come with energy-saving intelligence that allows them to adapt themselves for greater efficiency. Most of them also have smart features like weather forecasts and system maintenance reminders.
